Every year, around the 1st of January through April 15th every working American is expected to file an income tax return with the IRS. This return is used by the IRS to determine what your overall tax bill should have been for the previous year. Using a number of forms provided by the IRS everyone has to report their income and expenses.

The agents of the IRS will then review your tax return and determine whether or not all of the information is correct and that you either sent a check to cover what you owe the IRS or whether you are entitled to a refund check. With that said, if it is determined that there are any issues with your tax return, this will trigger the IRS to take a deeper look at your return and more than likely request an audit.

The average person only has a 1 percent chance of being selected for an IRS audit. That’s one drawing you don’t want to win! If you have been chosen, though, it’s important not to panic. How you respond to an IRS audit request can have a big impact on the outcome of the process in your tax defense.

While an IRS audit is undoubtedly stressful and can be a painful, lengthy process in some cases, following these tips will help you get through it:

  1. Read the letter carefully

Not every notice from the IRS is an official audit, but it’s easy to panic when a letter arrives from them. Take your time to read the letter from start to finish. If they are simply requesting verification of something in your taxes, provide the information promptly. You may be able to avoid a formal IRS audit altogether if you respond appropriately in a timely manner as part of your tax defense.

Penalty abatement is a form of tax debt relief you can avail to significantly reduce the total taxes you owe the IRS.

What is Penalty Abatement?

If you have a tax debt, the IRS will calculate and add penalties & interest on the amount owed.  The penalties include a ‘failure to file’ penalty if you have failed to file your returns on time (including extensions), a ‘failure to pay’ penalty if the tax amount has not been paid in full and which is calculated on the basis of the amount you owe. These two penalties are charged on a monthly basis for the entire period until resolution. Further the IRS charges a daily interest on the tax amount you owe. All in all, the each penalty may contribute up to 25% of your total tax bill.

If your failure to pay taxes has been due to financial difficulties, such difficulties are further compounded by the penalties, which continuously keep adding to the total tax debt. So penalty abatement is an option you should definitely consider to achieve some degree of tax debt relief. As professional enrolled agent, Mike Habib is a tax relief expert and can guide you in this matter if you do not feel confident enough to handle it on your own.

IRS Urges Travelers Requiring Passports to Pay Their Back Taxes or Enter into Payment Agreements;

People Owing $51,000 or More Covered

The Internal Revenue Service today strongly encouraged taxpayers who are seriously behind on their taxes to pay what they owe or enter into a payment agreement with the IRS to avoid putting their passports in jeopardy.

This month, the IRS will begin implementation of new procedures affecting individuals with “seriously delinquent tax debts.” These new procedures implement provisions of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, signed into law in December 2015. The FAST Act requires the IRS to notify the State Department of taxpayers the IRS has certified as owing a seriously delinquent tax debt. See Notice 2018-1. The FAST Act also requires the State Department to deny their passport application or deny renewal of their passport. In some cases, the State Department may revoke their passport.

An IRS Tax Levy is perhaps defaulting taxpayers’ worst nightmare but it is not altogether a rare occurrence and statistics place the number of Angelinos in Los Angeles, and American individuals, or businesses who are levied by the IRS; in millions every year.

A tax levy is by no means a cruel and unusual punishment but is a logical course of action against intentionally defaulting taxpayers by an arm of the government which collects the financial resources needed to run the country.

Paying taxes is every citizen’s duty and it is what is owed to the country by a private citizen, company or enterprise. Failure to pay taxes results in consequences. However, in all fairness a tax levy isn’t the first course of action taken by the IRS to ensure payment of taxes.

So what is a tax levy, why is it to be avoided at all costs and how does it prove to be an effective tool against defaulting taxpayers; read further to know more.

Dear Client:

Congress appears poised to enact a major tax reform law that could potentially make fundamental changes in the way you and your family calculate your federal income tax bill, and the amount of federal tax you will pay. This letter is designed to help you cope with the changes Congress is hammering into shape right now—to take advantage of tax breaks that may be heading your way, and to soften the impact of any crackdowns. Keep in mind, however, that while most experts expect a major tax law to be enacted this year, it’s by no means a sure bet. So keep a close eye on the news and don’t swing into action until the ink is dry on the President’s signature of the tax reform bill.

Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation!Marcie R.

Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied!Marshall W.
